Rule 7.3. Orders to Show Cause
(a) Generally. A court, on application supported by affidavit showing sufficient cause, may issue an order requiring a person to show cause why the party applying for the order should not have the relief it requests in its application. The court must designate a date by which the person must respond, and may set a hearing on the application.
(b) Service. An order to show cause must be served in the same manner that a summons and pleading are served under Rule 4, 4.1, or 4.2, as applicable, or, if the person to whom the order is directed has entered an appearance in the action, in accordance with Rule 5. Service must be effected within such time as the court orders.
